the mix use districts. parking has already changed in soma. that was actually proactively changed a couple years ago and no parking minimums but instead parking maximums and midblock alley extensions for large sites that have long frontages afford them the opportunity to grant the alley extensions to interior alleys in the block and as you know they have some of the largest in the city. residential open space -- currently in soma we have this requirement and it's very low and the end user fee is low and in eastern neighborhoods and required and also given more appropriate rate and plug into that as well, and in terms of impact fees -- we will talk more about implementation near the end, but there is no near impact fee system or framework for western soma. it will plug in eastern neighborhoods. it will use the same tier system for the eastern neighborhoods and the same rates will apply. other significant controls to keep in mind. obviously western soma and part of the eastern neighborhood but there are differences. that's one reason it was put out separately. we feel it's imp
're going to leave a vast number of lots that are right now parking lots, car lots, or under lose used -- facilities and could be housing down the line. as i recall the housing was going to be about 6,000 plus units and now 6,000 plus 200 units. it's not addressing the needs of the mid-market workers and those people that want to live close to housing. the other thing i wanted to bring up which wasn't mentioned here is hotels. i know cory and jim worked long and hard on this and i know hotels is a peripheral component but it's a major employer in san francisco and there are programs at san francisco state and city college and right now the hotels are restricted to 75 rooms and 25 along folsom and frankly it's just not going to have many hotels built under those restrictions. in fact i would suggest probably none and i think the hotel rooms count need to go beyond townsend and clear need for it. there is not enough in the city and major employer and where you get jobs and no hotels along folsom and they have taken that out of the marketplace, so i think you've got to go upwardos b

? well, 3-1/2 years ago, i first began using my radio frequency dermawand. why? because it delivers real results. and talk about results. here's a picture of dermawand's developer, christina boves. to prove it worked, she used it on just one side of her face for 12 weeks. look how the eyebrow appears to have lifted and the bags, the lines, the folds and wrinkles all around the eye area appear greatly diminished. the laugh line appears minimized and cheek puffiness also appears visibly reduced. even pore size looks smaller. the side treated with the dermawand clearly shows a more rejuvenated appearance and looks more lifted, toned and tightened. this picture was taken when she was 42. now here's christina today, 16 years later ,with no surgical facelifts, looking tight, lifted and absolutely great... at 58! and you too can get fabulous results in your very own home with the dermawand. we're so confident that dermawand will work for you, we're going to show you live the type of results that the dermawand can deliver. and here to help us is dermawand skin care specialist stella riches. >> t
the companies that do service for us do not own the data that they generate from us, that they will have a contractual obligation to share that with the city so that we can mine that to the rest of the city, that's advance of opportunities for everybody. i know at the heart of sharing this data, there is going to be a lot more jobs created, a lot more people out therein venting new ways to establish small businesses that will improve the way we live and work and play in the city. and we look forward to great events like a super bowl host or something like that, we're going to be able to give people a really rich amount of programs that they could access from here to santa clara to san jose. we can act regionally with our data and we can join and continue to be in the great city of san francisco. so, i want to thank all of the people, all of the different starting up companies here and those that are inventing with us, thank them for celebrating innovation month in such a exemplary way. and i think we're going to have a lot more to announce before this month is out, i

something or bring it to your attention, a lot of us here today work for the administration in this building which is actually is a pump station still in use that uses diesel pumps to pump the water from the ocean so it's not just a fire house, it's also us being exposed to diesel exhaust, and so with you mentioned this gal, rachel, is she the person who's not here today, or when you were talking about the air quality, having your air quality tested, and the odd thing is now a different agency runs and maintains these pumps that are right beneath us now so it gets kind of complicated, but i think i've been exposed, i worked at the airport for 11 years and then worked here, i have this exposure to diesel smell that you don't notice it here, i do notice it frequently, and so when you mention this gal rachel. >> so, just before this, we had a meeting because we're working on hopefully building a study to look at exposures among women in the fire course to understand what they're exposed to, this raises a really interesting kind of unique sub population within that, she is an environmental healt
, and she's going to help us see if we can build a study, so this was a great thing that you brought to our attention. >> i start to think about it over the years but especially working in an airport and now in an actively working diesel pump station. >> and it's not something you have any control over, and that's the same kind of fragmentation we're seeing at all levels, it's hard to make changes when jurisdictions move. >> but if i could get her contact information or something after the presentation, that would be great. >> okay, cool. >> i had two questions, one is you were just saying to use glass when you're cooking or microwave, what about -- i was told before that you could use plastic for the refrigerator or storage, are you saying avoid plastics all together for food storage, and then the second question is water bottles, say for instance i have a case of like costco water in my trunk that i just keep, is it the heat that's leeching stuff into the water or is the sun breaking down the plastic, what is getting leaked into the water, is it the bpa or other toxins? >> these are gre

- asking as many people as possible to give us feedback on what we should prioritize for the remaining slice of that pie. this slide shows a few different items, things that we have done. the main thing that we have that we think is pretty cool tool for people to use is an online - we call it the "san francisco budget tzar tool." you can be the budget tzar for a day. we go to a number of committees, street festivals, different events, to promote use of the tool and get people more information about the plan and gather feedback. we have a specific, citywide community advisory committee working with us throughout the process. and also we have done advertisements and other mechanisms. these are some of the backgrounds. the tool is - a little fuzzy on the powerpoint, www.sfbudgettzar.com. what you can do with the tool, gives you the 64 billion that we have, you can go through and select the different levels of maintenance, levels of program support, and also the different projects that you feel should be incorporated. we will give you feedback on where you are in using your budget
was a member of the board of supervisors, all of us wondered why we hadn't done anything there and the mayor thought the same. >> if an earthquake happened, the building was uninhabitable. it sat there vacant for quite a while. the city decided to buy the building in 1999 for $2. we worked and looked at ways that we can utilize the building for an office building. to build an icon i can building that will house a lot of city departments. >> the san francisco public utilities commission has an important job. we provide clean, pristine public drinking water to 2.6 million people in the san francisco bay area from the hetch hetchy regional water system. with also generate clean renewable energy for city services like public buses, hospitals, schools, and much more. and finally, we collect and treat all the city's wastewater and stormwater making it safe enough to discharge into the san francisco bay and pacific ocean. >> in 2006 the puc was planning a record number of projects. >> the public utilities commission is a very infrastructure-rich organization. we're out there rebuilding the water sy
. that would be useful. thanks. >> commissioner antonini. >> thank you and talk about this 11th street corridor and i earlier stated my preference for what i believe is wmuo which is option 3b and one of the reasons it would also allow office and presumably allow retail in that area which contributes to day time uses that would help the vitality of the area because if you have a lot of entertainment uses typically clubs they don't come into play until late at night and allowing some office and retail and day time commercial things would keep the district moving throughout the day too. we had a discussion while we were having a break there on the gas lamp in san diego and -- i'm not trying to hint this is what we're looking to create here but they do have an area where a concentration of dining establishments and some clubs are easily walkable because you often have to be cabbing from one part of san francisco to another to go to different scplais and we have a lot of walkable areas and like san diego there are few walkable areas and why it's concentrated there. the other question i h
in budget talks. here are the numbers to call. if you can also find us online. here is the headline in "the new york times." the pew center has a new study out called "the impact on the fiscal cliff on states." here is what it says. we would do more into these and how they will specifically affect states on an individual basis. there is a question on whether the fiscal cliff would hurt. it says -- our question for you this morning is whether the states should have a stake of in negotiations. looking more in the story "the new york times." it says -- some of the benefits states could receive, nobody is retained that president obama and republicans in congress will fail to reach an accord because they feel -- they fear that the resulting combination of spending cuts and tax increases could prompt another recession, which their states can ill afford. let's go to houston, texas and hear from barry. caller: high. host: am i:should sit seven role in the negotiations? we are hearing about how republicans and president obama are negotiating. caller: i think the democrats should have some form of a
. >> richard ruth was interviewed about his book "in buddha's company" at the u.s. naval academy. this is part of book tv's college series and it's a little under 15 minutes. >> host: book tvs on location at the u.s. naval academy in a aanapolis. professor ruth, what do you teach? >> guest: i teach southeast asian history. i concentrate on tie lan and vietnam. >> host: why is it important for students to know southeast asian history. >> guest: united states is still very much engaged in that corner of the worldment we have many alis and partners we're working with, and many students, midshipman, are going to be officers who are going to go to southeast asia and represent our interests there. so i think it's important for them to know southeast asian history to be comfortable with the culture and have some knowledge of their history. >> host: well, professor ruth. one of our long-time allies is thigh taken, and you have written a book called "in buddha's company: thai sole soldiers in the vietnam war." what role did they play? >> guest: thailand was a close ally of the united states during the
of the event arena and the orange for the mix use and retail development and in the dotted lines that is how views are gained along piers, along the san francisco waterfront, long views along the edge of the pier. but what we did in taking into account the full range of different opportunities we decided to actually move the arena around, tilt it around and reinforce the spectacular views and you will see in the site plan how the distribution of the different elements is. so this is the site plan for the development and i will present this in more detail in a minute, but the overall arrangement here you can see the venue located in the southeast corner of the pier maintaining public access along at ground level, and i'll show you that in a minute. can you seat very generous areas of plazas and tiers up to a height of 50 at the highest and 35 feet where you enter into the arena. you can see retail pavilions next to the embarcadero and then across on sea wall lot 330 you can see the proposed new development of two towers over the top of mix use development under a podium. now, this is a s
in is not going to stop them from complaining whether they are fully permitted or non conforming, conditional use, the neighbors have every right to complain if a venue is out of compliance. basically this has been written into law for a thousand years. the basic man's home is his castle now translates down to everyone is entitled to the peaceful and quiet use and enjoyment of their home. the western soma process as we described at our first informational hearing was a process of inclusion. the arts and the entertainment are represented on the task force. we had three town hall meetings. entertainment was on the agenda for each of the meetings. 200 or more residents and small business owners and entertainment people participated in each of those three town hall meetings. i can fully admit at the first town hall meeting tensions were throughout the room. there was a lot of tension, a lot of anxiety because neighbors were afraid of what was to come and the entertainment community was there arguing for more certainty. i can credit chris shaffer and the professional facilitators that she brou
. thanks for joining us. >> we've got a lot of news to cover in the next hour. hostess, okay, what's next for that baking giant, and was its demise brought on by changing eating habits or the market? >> we're also talking the weather. big travel day, people coming back from their thanksgiving festivities. we're also going to talk about the new democratic super majority. what exactly we can expect in the first few days of the legislative session, but first a second suspect is now in custody in a deadly crime spree. >> it happened saturday night. police used this sketch to track down the suspect. he's a 15-year-old and is now locked up in juvenile hall. this is surveillance video of carjackers outside the store, and police say he shot him to death when he tried to drive away. he was remembered yesterday during a memorial service in campbell. . >> he was a great kid, practical jokers. >>> two in a related story, the first public meeting in the search of a new police chief. the current chief plans to retire the end of january. while the search is already underway, officials want input about
. that is being rolled out at education, energy, treasury, u.s. aid, other agencies as well. these programs are celebrating the use of open data and hopefully will provide some additional support. i think there are even folks here who have been part of these events. we're excited for that continued support and hope you can all join this initiative in the neutral. -- future. >> so, earlier you were talking a little about kind of how san francisco came in in terms of actually ading the officer. more broadly how do you think san francisco compares and what are some of the other cities that are doing really well in terms of open data? >> i should be clear. when san francisco is third, we have a pact. i'll add to that actually. what's great in san francisco is there is not just going to be a chief data officer. there is also the office of civic innovation. jay's team, shannon's team. by having both of those units in place i think there is going to be a really powerful team. because you can't just open up the data. you have to do things like this, where you get the community together or you have
for joining us, i'm fredricka whitfield. from holiday travel to holiday shopping and a report just released showing business is booming. the national retail federation says a record 247 million shoppers visited stores and websites this black friday weekend. that's a 9% increase over last year's numbers. and their spending set a record, $59 billion, 13% more than last year. if you didn't find the best deals this weekend, coming up we'll take a look at the best shopping apps to help you get the best bang for your buck this holiday season. >>> now to the countdown that could have huge economic consequences. congress and the white house have just 37 days left to reach a budget deal or risk falling off the fiscal cliff and triggering massive spending cuts and tax hikes. cnn's athena jones reports on a possible turning point in the negotiations. >> reporter: members of congress expressed optimism sunday about the prospects for reaching a deal to avoid the fiscal cliff. a series of tax increases and spending cuts next year that could do serious damage to the economy. they also sounded warnings. >>
that was given to us is significantly incomplete. i'm not just commenting on the way it was listed in the public noticing but i would like to address that in order to fully understand it. stakeholder groups need to be contacted and talked to. the commission itself i think just needs for the clarity compare the writings of 2006, 2010 and 2012 and really evaluate whether addressing a administrative correction but i don't think it is. i received at a minimum up to 10 accordance on the matter. >> >> and by lawyers and all of the comment his the tone and message of consistency and i have to take quite seriously. it's not just about me being a commissioner and out smart everybody and the public needs to inform me about what the law says and what is going to happen under eir and ceqa law and i believe there are serious shortcuts being made here and addition to finding document full of vague language, innuendo, and conflikz of terms and terms are exchanged and don't mean anything. planning, planning commission, planning department. i'm not sure what it means and i could go on and on and refers to
. in our challenging economy, many of us need to think about shopping for holiday gifts this year. for tips and advice op how to keep holiday spending in check is community manager of wells fargo bank greg young. thank you for being here with us. i know you have great ideas for us. >> thank you for having me. >> what is the most important thing we need to do to make sure we manage our money well this season? >> the first thing you want to do is make sure you plan what you are going to spend this holiday season. often times with the excitement of the holidays we want to go out and shop. it feels good after thanksgiving and right up to the holiday season, mean january we are depressed because of all we spent. >> right. exactly. i want to footnote we know when we set our attitude toward anything, money, food, or relationship, if there is planning, it brings us into a more thoughtful and creative approach. i want to underscore the importance of planning. >> absolutely. the key to a successful and debt free or minimal debt holiday season is really planning out what you are going to spend
and that informs these land use projects. now in addition to the networks are the list of projects themselves. we identified three phases. 12013 to 2017 and out to two 032 because there are different waves happening and different transportation improvements slaitded to come on line. it might be at the end of the assessment we might jump start a project because a major development is happening the year before so it's this kind of clarity understand whag is going on in the land use realm, the terminal and the projects and mission rock at one side and understand what all of these things or some of the muni routes coming fall into place. so just a sample of some of the outcomes of the workshop. we had six maps and summaries. these were they written on and saw gaps and things needed to happen. it's hard to read it but it's there and on the website and if you look on piers 30-32 you will see this but there is a list of comments so we know the transit and parking issues. that's helping us make sure as we work with engineers they're getting the input from the people that live and work about this are
. retailers earned one-third of their profits during the holiday season and consumers make up 70% of the u.s. economy. during the holiday-shortened week the markets moved in tandem for the fiscal cliff. up more midweek. the markets continued to climb on friday. stunning accusations that one of america's iconic companies hewlett-packard which acquired autonomy last year for $11 billion is accusing autonomy of what it called serious improprieties in its bookkeeping and inflating its own value. meg witman says the company lied about how much it was worth. >> we believe there's a willful effort on the part of certain members of autonomy management to mislead shareholders when they were a publicly held companies and mislead buyers including hp and we stand by the forensic review we have seen. as you know, we have turned it over to the fcc. >> we are shocked. we have been pretty ambushed by this today. first we heard about it was a press release and we refute them. they are factually incorrect. we'd like to learn more about them. i'm afraid the details haven't been shared with us. >> reporter: aut
scott wiener and others works on:we have the opportunity to unite everybody and it's up to us in government to have listened carefully, and be responsible with your money and get the job done. are we ready to get the job done? >> yes! are we ready to build the future for your kids? >> yes. >> are we ready to support the great parks in san francisco with proposition b? >> yes! let's go forward and keep another world series and escambia keep our san francisco successful! thank you, mr. mayor, we're going to have a celebration this morning. he reminded me it's about community spaces too. so take a moment and look up. look up. because that is where the meeting room will be on the second floor with after-hour access for all the poets and all the kids' story times and various activities. it's going to be fantastic. we want to continue our theme of partnerships and teamwork by acknowledging the great staff that has put it all together and it's going to continue to offer services here in the neighborhood at our current library. and i see robert carlson, robert, would you wave?
possibilities there are for resources for that project, if any. so it is an item that needs to come before us. whether we can do something with it or not, i think we still need to have some transparency about that. >> yeah. i agree, commissioner, that i think it is a discussion we should have. i personally would like to get a tour of the facilities that are out there and any other commissioner that wants to familiarize himself with it. because it seems that we have a permanent place on this agenda that it's talked about. whether we like it or not. so maybe we can like it a little more. >> i actually don't know where they are. i would like to -- >> yeah, we -- >> okay. >> and in fact, we did -- when i first came on as commissioner we did do a tour of the facilities. it was laid out what was going to go where, what was going to be done, some resources. possible resources there were. then it just -- then it was just dropped. this was some time ago. i think it would be good to have other commissioners go on the tour and, you know, kind of get brought up to date on what's happened with that projec
in developing this. so, as far as creating access to the public, using the open data sets, and creating exposure to neighborhoods that you probably traditionally didn't even think were there, we realized there were 1200 different facilities all through the park -- all through the city as we were going out to explore. and upon our own discovery, and i being a local native, i didn't know about 800 of them. so, as we move forward into the future, taking this, working with some other departments like san francisco arts, we're creating access for people, creating efficiency with the government being able to manage transactions, creating a platform for people to actually interact with the city on a level that hasn't been done before. so, ideally, using the san francisco rec and park, the future san francisco arts app, using our mobile commerce to manage that is creating jobs, revenue, and efficiency for the public and tourists to be able to navigate san francisco in a way that hasn't been done before. thank you. >> all right. (applause) >> so, we're going to show another application from motion launch
>> sno liebee . >> thank you so much. >> is that it? does everyone clap for us? >> i'm the only clap. >>> thanks for watching "state of the union." i'm candy crowley in washington. head to cnn.com/sotu for analysis. look for us on itunes.

. >> this week on "newsmakers," we want to welcome mary kay henry. we have two reporters to help us with this conversation today. lindsey cook, "national journ al." >> mary, you met with the president last week on these so- called fiscal cliff. what kind of assurances did you get from the president about his willingness to put entitlement cuts on the table in his negotiations? >> the president was crystal clear on his desire to get a conversation as a top priority before any cuts could be entertained. what we were pleased to hear, both community and labor leaders to work together in that meeting, was how completely clear the president was on respecting the will of the electorate from the november 6 election, where he believes he offered the nation a choice, and that the popular vote and the electoral vote said, yes, it is time for the wealthy americans to pay their fair share. >> did you get a sense that if he does get what he is asking for in revenue, he would be willing to entertain concessions on entitlements as well? he did do that last year with speaker boehner in the 2011 budg
the telecommunications industry was knee deep in this. they can -- in-line in us as to what went right. obviously all was not hunky dory. people lost power. is that something that could not be prevented? is this something if we changed might be prevented in the future? last summer a storm knocked out 911. these things are becoming more commonplace. a hearing would allow us to investigate the reliability of the networks and identify and highlight the best practices and addressed potential vulnerabilities in our communications infrastructure. obviously i want to hear what the industry has to say. we can help in light in congress as to what we should be doing to prevent this from happening in the future. >> representative engel, have you heard back from chairman upton? >> we have not. it was sent to chairman upton and the chairman of the telecommunications subcommittee. this proposed hearing is not to be adversarial. it should be bipartisan and we want to find out what happened. i do not think there is anyone who would not want to do that. i would take it one step further. i would like to see a separate
